I used to devote all my time to study, however, I gave myself once a week off for rest. My strategy for the JEE Main 2023 exam was based on my strengths and weaknesses. For a long time I noticed that my Mathematics and Physics were slightly better than Chemistry. Therefore, I gave my last few days of the exam to specifically Chemistry by referring to NCERT and remembering facts.

There are three sections and one needs to understand how to manage the sequences or handle a tough question without wasting much time on it.
